    Wilburs SKETCHSAUCE

    Hey everyone. I'm 19 and going to school in Portland, Oregon. I've been lurking on this website for quite some time. It's inspired me to get better.

    I'm here for criticism, so have at it.

    A note: All except the very last were drawn from my head (obviously). I tend to find reference work less enjoyable which is something I'm going to need to get over I suppose.

    I also just noticed a trend: my legs suck.

    It would have been a waste had you become a doctor, I think...

    Your legs do not suck, but you only include them on a few drawings, anyway, so it's hard to say anything about them definitively.

    You should illustrate a book of Greek myths, or something. Looking at these made me think of them - not of any illustrations I've ever seen, but of the way I used to feel about them when I read them.

    Have you ever tried doing versions of something like that? You said you hate using any reference, but nothing is ever truly, absolutely original, and I think it'd be amazing if you did, say, the Chimera or minotaur or something.

    Make a portfolio/slides and SEND IT to book publishers or to publishing agencies (especially the latter), for crying out loud...you could make money. Money is good.

    hey man, you're definately good for your age and i'm sjure you know it hehe

    your pencil work looks nice i like the shark one...only suggestion i have is to get concentrated on the figure and complete image sketch before going on to rendering stage.Make your characters FIT in the page.Draw ALL the body and then, if necessary, crop it to your needs.Cause i used to do that a lot, and now i realize that practicing the full construction everytime does help (esp with the bloody feet)...apart from that, keep pushing man!

    ciao!

    Ty Oulton, jamLEE: Thanks!

    TheGnoll: Yeah, I really need to start paying attention to composition and whatnot. Thanks for the tips.

    Crap:

    I am just getting into robots. I've really never tried to draw mechanical stuff before, so I'm trying to expand. Both were done during class when I should have been taking notes. I think you're actually better at drawing looser if you're forced to go more quickly (no time to dwell on details = stronger overall look - details better added later). The designs are boring, but whatever.

    Drew a picture last night. I don't really like what he looks like, but I think I'm gonna work on vine hangers. The whole reorientation of the body upside down seems like it could be something fun to experiment with.

    Also I NEED to just start rendering digitally, but I am scared of drawing with a mouse. Do you all draw with mice? Anybody wanna give me the lowdown on completely digitally rendered stuff.

    I'm taking a drawing class this year, which has already been very good for me - gets me drawing from life, and my teacher is making me think about basics again. Here's a dead birdie done in charcoal. It was supposed to be a contour drawing.
